Valentine’s Day is an overtly romantic holiday, making it a great opportunity to show your partner how much you care. To make sure you have an unforgettable Valentine’s Day, it can be helpful to plan what you want to do well in advance. On the other hand, there are so many things you can do that you might not even know where to start. Below, you can find several fun Valentine’s Day ideas that you can start planning now.
1. Fun hot chocolate recipes
It’s probably cold outside, so snuggle up with your Valentine’s date alongside mugs of interesting hot chocolate that you made yourself. Instead of making a regular hot chocolate, find unique recipes online and make them with your partner for a fun, holiday-appropriate date idea. To add an extra kick to your hot chocolate, you can add some whiskey to your hot chocolate and enjoy your boozy, rich drink at home while you watch a movie.
2. Romcom movie night
Speaking of movies, Valentine’s Day is a great occasion to curl up with your partner and watch a romantic comedy or holiday movie. There are seemingly endless romantic comedies available on streaming services, and you can find them easily in the romantic comedy sections of your platform’s choice.
3. Breakfast in bed
If you want to do something simple and impressive for Valentine’s Day, one delicious idea is to prepare a meal for your partner so they can have breakfast in bed. If your partner has a sweet tooth, you can make heart-shaped buttermilk pancakes by pouring pancake batter into a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Not only are pancakes easy to make, but they’re also a sweet, comforting dish perfect for Valentine’s Day.
On the other hand, if your partner prefers more savory foods, you can make some love toast, which is bread with a heart-shaped egg fried in the middle. As with heart-shaped pancakes, you can make love toast with a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Additionally, if your date likes sweet and savory, you can go all out and make both of these heart-shaped recipes as a surefire way to impress your partner for Valentine’s Day.
4. Self-care day
For Valentine’s Day, you and your date can have a relaxing time by practicing some self-care together. At home, you can do self-care couple activities such as giving each other massages, having a bubble bath, doing couples yoga, or dancing to music together. You just might discover that you and your partner will bond especially strongly while you’re having fun pampering each other.
5. Bundle up and go for a walk
Even if it’s cold outside, you can still have a fun Valentine’s Day date. You and your partner can dress according to how cold it is and bring some hot chocolate in insulated thermos bottles to a nearby nature preserve. Often, nature preserves aren’t crowded during the winter months due to the cold, so on your date, you just might find a bench perfect for sitting, talking, and enjoying some nice hot chocolate.
